Eastwood Recycled Water Pump Station

eastwood ps

Irvine Ranch Water District is constructing a 6,800-square-foot recycled water pump station at Irvine Boulevard and Jeffrey Road in Irvine to enhance the District’s recycled water delivery systems, which are used primarily to irrigate landscapes and medians.

Most construction will take place on site; however, some road work and lane closures will be required across Irvine Boulevard to install pipeline that connects the pumps to the network.

Construction of the facility is scheduled from Fall 2018 through early 2020.

Work hours: From 8:30 a.m. to 5 p.m. Monday through Friday, (9 a.m. to 3 p.m. Monday through Friday for roadwork).

Contact information: For questions or comments, please email info@irwd.com or call 949-453-5500. During non-business hours, please call 949-453-5300 (24 hours).
